Ladders necessary equipment for parade route

Have you ever seen anything like this? If you are not handy enough to make one, they actually come assembled for purchase at hardware stores.

I remember how frustrating it was for me when I was 5, unable to see, and how scary to ride on my brother's shoulders. This device is the perfect solution.

You gotta get to the parade route early to claim a spot. Folks were out on Magazine Street at 4 p.m. even though it is "only" Thursday. Muses is one of the best parades and if you are near the front and curbside, you might score a shoe throw. Shoes are big with Muses, an all-girl parade with some of the most creative, satirical floats.

An Elvis waiting.

Muses features girl marching groups, mostly wearing pink wigs, followed by Elvis impersonators on scooters. You wouldn't want to miss that!

I walked to the postal store and neighborhood folks were already preparing, dragging ice chests and cribs, to get ready for the parade.

I just heard a news story on TV. The police chief is cracking down on personal portalets (potties) on the neutral ground (traffic median). Citizens were defending their cherished rights and explaining to the reporter how they were performing a public service by renting the units. 

How can they change when this is what they've always done? Poor Chief Ronal Serpas has his work cut out for him!
